When will my grades be available?

Instructors typically have three business days after the semester ends to post grades. So, if the semester ends on Friday, Instructors have through Wednesday to enter final grades.

My instructor told me I have an A in my class, but when I looked at my grades online, I see I have a B. What should I do?

It is possible that you instructor incorrectly entered your grade. You should contact your instructor immediately. If there has been an error, your instructor can submit a grade change form to Admissions & Records.

I went online to view my grades and one of my grades isn’t there. How come?

Grades are “pushed” onto the student transcript and the web by 10:30 p.m. every night. Your instructor may have entered the grade, but it isn’t viewable because the “push” has not happened. You may want to check the web after 10:30 p.m. Another reason that you grade is not there may be that the instructor has not recorded your grade.

My class ends in the middle of the semester and I need to transfer it to UNC right away so it will count for graduation. How do I get my grade?

Some instructors will post grades right after the class ends while others will wait until the end of the semester. To ensure that you receive your grade early, you will need to fill out an Early Grade Request form and return it to Admissions & Records. We will either mail the transcript when your grade is turned in or call you to pick it up, whichever you mark on the form.

Can my parents get access to my grades?

In accordance with federal law (FERPA), no one can access your academic record without written consent from you (the student). If you want your parents (or other interested parties) to have access to your grades, you must fill out the Release of Confidentiality Form specifying the information you want to have released. You can also print your grades from your online student account and share them with your parents.

Does a letter grade of "D" count for my AA Degree?

A letter grade of “D” will count for your degree, but it will not transfer to another school. A “D” will not count in an AS degree if it is received in any math, science, or computer science courses. The AS degree requires that students receive a “C” or better in these courses. Most AAS degrees require that a student pass with a “D” or better; however, some courses require that a student pass with a “C” or better in order to move on to the next level course.

If I receive a letter grade of "D" in an Aims class - will it be accepted when I transfer

No it will not transfer.

Do pre-college courses count for my degree? Do they count in my GPA?

College courses are numbered 100 and above. If the course is below then it is considered pre-college and does not count for your degree. They are also not used to calculate your GPA. Math is an exception - Students are required to take a math course numbered at 120 or higher to graduate with an AA. A math course numbered 121 or higher is required for the AS. Math courses numbered between 100 and 119 are calculated into the GPA and can possibly be used for certain AAS degrees. An academic advisor can help you choose which math you need to meet graduation requirements.
